How can i view my blackberry messenger contactson a text file from a previous blackberry backup.

Hi guys, i recently discovered that i lost the bbm pin of some of my contacts. Thankfully, i back up my blackberry regularly via black berry protect and blackberry DM and tried using blackberry backup extractor to extract a previous backup to see if i could view my bbm contacts in excel and retrieve the contacts.

 

Unfortunately, i wasn't able to view them, as it just displayed very few contacts on ms excel and some gibberish on notepad. I would like to know if there is a way to view my complete bbm contacts stored on my blackberry backup on a text file format or in excel.

 

The other option available to me is to keep restoring my blackberry to previous backups with the hope of retrieving them and this i feel would be very rigorous and could lead me to loosing some newer contacts.

 

Any help or info on how to go about this is deeply appreciated.

 

Thanks
